Sources of Financial Assistance for Transfer Students
The Office of Student Financial Assistance wants to ensure transfer students’ transition into The College is as smooth as possible. We are here to serve and counsel you regarding the financial aid process and procedures that are pertinent to transfer students’ success at The College. Welcome to The College of New Jersey!
Free Application for Federal Student Aid
Students who are transferring to TCNJ must complete either the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the Renewal FAFSA. List The College of New Jersey Title IV School Code 002642. Upon receipt of the FAFSA the Office of Student Financial Assistance will review your information and begin the awarding process.
